I agree that it was also documented that he was a crappy soldier.....no doubts there.

I'll have to look in the book again, I swear that they scanned documents that supposedly backed up their claims.

Thanks for the correction.....

Lecil Travis Martin, Col., USAF (retd.) a/k/a "Boxcar Willie": enlisted USAF in 1949, qualified as a B-29 flight engineer. Took a commission later on, becoming a rated pilot on that same aircraft. Pursued his country & western act as a part-time hobby while continuing his career as an active-duty "heavy" pilot (including the C-5A) until his retirement in 1976.

The article is in error, as one can't receive a DD from a special court martial. He probably got "the Big Chicken Dinner".

The way I heard the Mr Rogers story, he was a Marine Sniper and wore the LS shirts & sweaters on the show to cover his full sleeve tattoos on both arms. I remember the first time I heard that one going "Wait... MR ROGERS?"
